    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time

    Pros

    Compensation package is good overall.
    Benefits are great especially for higher titles.
    Secure company for now, great market position.

    Cons

    Benefits have some oddities... E.g. negotiated benefits would pay for adoption fees, but nothing for IVF or other infertility treatments which are typically covered to some extent in similar size companies.
    Work/life balance can easily suffer in San diego with very aggressive schedules, over the last a few years schedules have become increasingly unreasonable.
    Hiring in SD is too lax imho... There is some good talent but a lot of incompetence in some groups. The case is much better in regional offices where every req is scarce and scrutinized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live up to your roles and better handle the pressure, very a few managers do that ( I'm a manager) many managers pass the pressure down to their teams. This is in no way unique to Qualcomm and afflicts most companies. Qualcomm can defnitly improve managers training and accountability.

    Better have a good college degree. Evidently 2 more years of college is way more important than 20+ years of real world

    I worked at Qualcomm as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Qualcomm has excellent opportunities to work with leading edge technology, IF you fit their definition of a professional. If not, better look elsewhere.

    Cons

    I was hired to work a 1 year contract. My contract was cancelled after only 3 months despite excellent performance evaluations. The word contract here has nothing but negative connotations. It only means they cannot give you a REAL direct hire position for the duration of the contract. Pay was low, benefits nonexistant. Not a pleasant experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should place more importance on proven ability than on a single piece of university paper.
